"Defining your work is a kingdom of forms woven in silence that are concatenated in each image, it is a totally incommunicado world, there is no possibility of empathy or closeness with those around you, it is a desert city in the "I" and its kingdom are all its pictures that seem to be enclosed in an uneasy and resigned impotence, that flows and spreads through the urban scenes of the captive and anguished human being of a power that ignores.
The world has paid for the most distressing and devouring loneliness of the self: THE CITY. "
